On the way to work today (18th), the winter-like cold continued.

The first frost fell in Seoul this fall, and several parts of the southern region broke records for the lowest temperature recorded at the same time.

According to the Korea Meteorological Administration, the minimum temperature this morning was 4 to 5 degrees below zero in the inland area and around 5 degrees at the coast, similar to yesterday (-2.6 to 6.7 degrees below zero), which felt like winter.

Daegwallyeong (-4.4 degrees below zero) and Chupungryeong (-1.7 degrees below zero), Hamyang (-1.6 degrees below), Cheorwon-Paju (-1.5 degrees below zero), Cheonan-Namwon (-1.2 degrees below zero), Suncheon (-1.0 degrees below zero), Icheon (-0.9 below zero) Province), Dongducheon (-0.7 degrees below zero), Sunchang (-0.4 degrees below zero), and Chuncheon (-0.3 degrees below zero) had their lowest temperatures below 0 degrees.

The lowest temperature in each region is 2.8 degrees Celsius in Seoul, 1.8 degrees in Suwon, 4.2 degrees in Incheon, 1.3 degrees in Daejeon, 3.6 degrees in Gwangju, 2.0 degrees in Daegu, 7.1 degrees in Busan and 9.0 degrees in Jeju.

The lowest temperature recorded in mid-October was recorded in Cheonan, Gunsan (2.7 degrees), Sunchang, Suncheon, Hamyang, and Gyeongju (1.1 degrees) in the southern regions.

The first frosts of this fall were observed in Seoul and Suwon.

The daytime maximum temperature is 13 to 19 degrees, lower than the normal (19 to 22.5 degrees), but it is expected to rise by 2-3 degrees from yesterday (10.2 to 16.7 degrees).

This seems to be because the cold, dry high pressure in northern China, which brought the cold over the weekend, is losing its cool properties as it descends to the central region of China.

However, as the high pressure in central China and the high pressure expanding again in northern China meet, a pressure valley is formed and rain cloud belts are developed.

During the day, it starts to rain with raindrops falling on the west coast of Incheon and Gyeonggi Province.

It will rain from the evening in Seoul, the inland areas of Gyeonggi-do, and the northern Yeongseo area of ​​Gangwon-do.

The rain is expected to extend to the Yeongseo region of Gangwon, Chungcheong, the eastern part of Jeolla, and the Gyeongsang inland region tomorrow morning or morning.

The expected precipitation will not be much, around 5 to 20 mm in the metropolitan area, Gangwon, Chungnam, and western Jeollabuk-do, and 5 to 20 mm in Chungbuk, eastern Jeollabuk-do, Jeollanam-do, Gyeongsang Inland, Jeju, and the West Sea.

In the mountainous regions of central and northern Gangwon, as the sun sets tomorrow, the temperature will drop to near freezing, mixing rain and snow, or snow may accumulate around 1 cm.
